Rutgers School of Engineering students can take advantage of our accelerated master’s program that allows undergraduate students to add one more year of schooling to complete their graduate degree in engineering. Degree completion date is based on the number of graduate courses completed as an undergraduate. Students may apply to either the Master of Science (MS) in Industrial Engineering or the Master of Engineering (ME) in Industrial Engineering.
Ideally suited for an undergraduate student in Industrial and Systems Engineering, it may be possible to pursue a BS/Master's in combination with another undergraduate major.
The BS/Master's Program offers:
- An expedited graduate applications process for highly qualified students
- Added depth of knowledge inherent in graduate course work
- Earning a bachelor's and master's degrees in a shortened timeframe
- A tailored graduate experience to fit students' interests and schedule
- School of Engineering may provide financial incentives for students joining the program
Please note: Any course used towards the undergraduate degree cannot be used towards a graduate degree.
